Spring Gardening

Its very rainy here today but our plants are loving it ...
DH this year tried to grow some things from seed and it has gone really well.... in our little hothouse/tray we have Zucchini, Spring Onions and Lettuce all growing beautifully :)
My Christmas Lily has made an appearance again , cant wait to see its beautiful flowers too.
In our garden beds i have planted beans, peas, capsicum, pumpkin and strawberries but its a bit wet to take pictures down there today .

Im a bit excited to have finished all the blocks on this quilt :)
I need to get into gear and get the sashing and borders done in the next couple of weeks.

I Heart Flowers

My gorgeous daughter Sienna spent her walk home from the bus stop picking me these lovely flowers.
She snuck them into the house and arranged them into an old coffee jar before presenting them to me ...... lovely girl!!!!!
